COVID-19 Information



We can help to slow the spread of Coronavirus!


Make sure you and your children follow these general principles to prevent spreading any respiratory virus:

  • Wash your hands often - with soap and water for about 20 seconds, or use an alcohol based sanitiser if soap and water aren't available
  • Wear a face covering (unless you are medically exempt of course)
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Keep at least 2 metres away from others who are not inside your support bubble
  • Avoid close contact with people who are unwell
  • If you have a temperature of over 37.8C, do not attend school
  • If you have a new continuous cough, do not attend school
  • Cover your cough with a tissue, and then throw the tissue in a bin
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects in the home
